thanks for the suggestion, DIno,
so i removed the code that added the .Html max height attribute.
i've added the max-height css property #my-grid div.k-grid-content
But how do I avoid the default height setting of 200px that the OP mentioned on the div.k-grid-content element?
I always get this style applied without having specified it anywhere.
I'd like the grid content div to auto size up until 200px based on the row contents...
so that the div is wrapped tightly around the rows if I only have a minimum number of rows.....
that default height style is applied when i use the kendo grid helper. the client side grid is good.
i can get around it for now by trumping that style in my css
